Gordon Library will be temporarily closed between 19 July and 29 July for installation of a new air-conditioning system.
The new air-conditioning unit will not only improve library users comfort during summer but is also set to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 30%.
A sophisticated control system means that the system will monitor outside air conditions, CO2 levels, start up times and any public holiday scheduling and adjust temperatures inside the library accordingly.
There will be improved climate control in storage areas where many fragile and historic items from the library’s local studies collection are kept.
During the temporary closedown, users of Gordon library will have their loaned items automatically extended to cover the installation period between Thursday 19 July and Sunday 29 July.
Library items can also be returned or borrowed at other Ku-ring-gai library branches in Turramurra, St Ives or Lindfield.
Meeting rooms at the Old School Building Gordon will remain open for hire during the installation period but will be accessed via the Gordon School building off Pacific Highway instead of the main entrance.
